The Brazilian butt lift is beautiful and effective way to create a wonderful curvy shape and a full round natural bottom. Just as important as the surgery itself is the postoperative recovery. Patients need to be constructed on the best way to take care of their body and their beautiful new curves. In my practice here in Miami, the Brazilian butt lift is one of our most popular procedures. After the surgery, the patients are given very specific instructions on the best way to take care of their new curves. We recommend that the patient avoid placing any pressure on to the butt for at least 2 to 3 weeks. The patient needs to use a donut pillow cushion whenever they sit during this period. This allows the weights to be placed on the back of the legs and to avoid putting pressure on the bottom edge of the gluteal area. The patient can also obtain from us a lightweight portable chair that they can use either at home or at work. This chair has a thin bench which allows them to sit on the back of their size and put no pressure on the gluteal area either.
For the best results, be sure that you are working with a board-certified plastic surgeon who has a great deal of experience in liposuction, body contouring, and fat grafting. Ask them a question that you may have but be prepared when they tell you to avoid placing any pressure on to these areas.
